According to the 22-year-old woman, she was going to her parents' house in Khandsa village around midnight on 29 May with her daughter after having an argument with her husband. She boarded an auto rickshaw in which the three accused were already sitting. She told the police that the accused started molesting her as soon as she sat in the vehicle. When the woman started shouting, the infant began crying. The three men threw the girl child out of the auto rickshaw and took turns to rape her. The woman had filed a complaint of gang-rape and murder with the Manesar police station. (ANI)
